Alcatel Idol 3

Back at Mobile World Congress we got our first look at the upcoming Idol 3 series devices from Alcatel. Starting April 21, Alcatel will be accepting pre-orders for the 5.5-inch device, which will begin shipping in May. The 5.5-inch variant comes equipped with a 1080p display, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM along with a 1.7GHz processor, and will run Android 5.0.2 out of the box.

Originally Alcatel had announced pricing for the device of $279, but to push people to pre-order they have announced special pricing. For those who pre-order the device, the Idol 3 will run $249. Alcatel has not yet announced pricing or availability of the 4.7-inch model, which is the slightly less powerful variant of the 5.5-inch version. Check out the full list of specs for both models, and sign up at the link below for more information about the pre-orders.
